Great list! I recognized almost all of them.

The Gal Herself said...

So I only got 5. I hope at least I got them right!

Debbie @Like a Rose said...

Wow, I only think of know two of them. #8 Batman and #13 Rocky # something.

Andi said...

I could hear Oprah's voice in my head when I read #1 and Jack Nicholson's voice when I read #8. Thanks for the awesome list!

Malcolm said...

Thanks to all who took part. Some of you did very well. For those who didn't, don't sweat it. Even for movies that we've seen, identifying a quote from it can be hard.

Amy: Your comments about #13 had me cracking up. Because you do have ovaries, you may be able to better appreciate the slo-mo scene where Rocky and Apollo are running on the beach.

Heather: I hope you got #3 correct. :-)

Beckeye: Mickey's death has always bothered me because it was never addressed that it was Clubber's fault.

Smittenly Written: I have a joke/theory about Road House. You can turn your TV to AMC at any given time and have a 33.5% chance of catching Road House.

Here are the quotes again, followed by the movie:

1. I loves Harpo, God knows I do. But I'll kill him dead 'fo I let him beat me.

The Color Purple

2. Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit sniffing glue.

Airplane

6. Winky Dinky Dog - isn't that beautiful? C'mon, say it with me: Winky... Dinky... DOG! Oh, yes. Oh, oh oh...

Hollywood Shuffle

7. No more yankie my wankie. The Donger need food.

Sixteen Candles

8. Can somebody tell me what kind of a world we live in, where a man dressed up as a *bat* gets all of my press? This town needs an enema!

Batman

Adventures In Babysitting

10. And I want the rest of you cowboys to know something, there's a new sheriff in town. And his name is Reggie Hammond. So y’all be cool. Right on.
